Night in the Cinema

“Night at The Cinema” was written by Uri Brener and Elias Faingersh and premiered with Aviv String Quartet,

later rearenged for the string orchestra and performed with the Israeli Symphonetta

 

Aviv och Elias Faingersh – a Great Meeting
Those who did not attend the culture ministry’s concert tonight missed a genuine artistic and at the same time an absolutely crazy experience. The Israeli string quartet “Aviv” presented a wonderful interpretation of Brahms` second string quartet in A-moll. Outstanding ensemble playing and wonderful sound got the air to wobble in the auditorium of the Malmö Music Academy. It was a great privilege to listen to these international high-class musicians. 

 After a break we were invited to join an experience that is difficult do depict or express in these digital rows: a combination of an acting, dancing and challenging top-trombonist Elias Faingersh sharing a stage with chamber music specialists from Israel: something one seldom sees on one concert scene. 

  Uri Brenner, a composer in kippa — and tzitzit, who had written music for the project “Night at the Cinema 2008” especially for the Aviv quartet and Faingersh, joined us on its world premier in Malmö. In a short explanation speech before the beginning Brener conveyed that he wanted to inspire us to create our own cinema attitude within ourselves, to see something we have not seen earlier at the cinema. Indeed, I believe no one in the auditorium has ever experienced anything similar neither in a live performance nor in recording.

 Elias Faingersh attached a microphone to his trombone and to his mouth and played with different film genres like an announcer “behind the frame” and as an effect maker: everything from horror film, actions, Russian realism, mafia and Fellini to fantasy a La “Harry Potter” and “The Lord Of The Rings”. Along with the ironic imitation of a typical Hollywood-saga he danced Irish folk dance in front of the hardest working quartet in showbizz- the “Spring Quartet” as they unmoved interpreted Stravinsky-inspired musical!

  One could do nothing else than stand up and applaud “Bravo!” to a glorious eclectic experience full of humor and playful blessing. As cream on top of the pie, Uri “burnt of” a Boogie-woogie on the grand piano that stood in the background of the scene. Even the stage were used to maximum!
